STOP ASIAN HATE: RALLY RECAP 

Five thousand allies attended The Toronto Solidarity Rally Against Anti-Asian Racism this past Sunday afternoon in downtown Toronto. The rally was called to raise awareness about anti-Asian racism following the horrific shooting earlier this month in Atlanta, in which several Asian-American women were murdered. 

The Chinese Canadian National Council for Social Justice (CCNC-SJ) recently released a report analyzing data from CovidRacism.ca & Elimin8 Hate.
